Haha, I wish I could say the same thing! Mine's an 89, and I have to warm it up in my driveway for at least ten minutes before driving or every time I put the clutch in it dies

Not to burst anyone's bubble, but windchill affects nothing other than human skin (or any type of skin, incuding animal). It doesn't make a lick of difference for a vehicle. It won't make any part of the vehicle any colder than the ambiant temperture. Water doesn't freeze any faster when there is windchill.

But it's still impressive that anything would start when it's that cold.

a few weeks ago it was -30 degrees f but the jeep was in the garage so it was only about -10 or -15 degrees f. But it started right up. I haven't had a block heater that I plugged in for about 20 years and I haven't had a problem. How these newer cars and trucks do it is beyond me, but they always start, well almost always.

By the way, the heater in the jeep does a great job, but at -30 degrees f, the gaps in the top and the half doors let alot of cold air in and I have to wear gloves all the way to work.
